180-gram vinyl reissue

A lesser-known gem in the Mingus catalog with Bill Evans on piano!

Recorded in New York City in August 1957

One of Charles Mingus’ lesser-known band sessions, recorded in 1957, this lyrical set of five originals (plus the standard “Memories of You”) features his usual sidemen of the period (trombonist Jimmy Knepper, trumpeter Clarence Shaw, Shafi Hadi on tenor and alto, and drummer Dannie Richmond), along with pianist Bill Evans. AllMusic writes: “The music stretches the boundaries of bop, is never predictable and, even if this is not one of Mingus’ more acclaimed dates, it is well worth acquiring for the playing is quite stimulating.”
